love cooking so we plan to share some of our favorite recipes.
Here is another one of my mom's recipes that I loved as a
kid and have revamped a bit. Enjoy!
1 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup dark maple syrup
1/2 cup stout
2 cups wheat flour
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp each: cinnamon, cloves & ginger
2 tsp baking soda
Cream together sugar, shortening & eggs. Mix in maple
syrup and stout then dry ingredients. Drop by teaspoon onto
a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle
with powdered sugar.
The original recipe called for cold coffee instead of beer.
I made it with Harpoon's Chocolate Stout and they were very
tasty. I suggest trying it with a coffee stout or a spiced
winter brew. I also swapped out some white flour for wheat
hoping to compensate for the shortening. Not sure how you'd
make a soft cookie without Crisco. Any ideas?
Let Pat know.
